9-11 am (Saturday and Sunday), $40 each day
Taylor will teach a self-led mysore-style practice on Saturday and Sunday morning 9-11 am. If you’ve never practiced mysore-style ashtanga, you can read about how it is practiced in traditional form in Mysore, India here. Mysore is a guided self practice. This is a personal teaching style designed for your background in yoga. All skill levels are welcome (including beginners!!) — the studio will be open and available for you to come at your convenience from 8:45 am to 11 am (please arrive no later than 10 am). If you’ve only practiced ashtanga with a teacher providing cues for each pose, this practice is different in that teachers guide you to practice by memory.
Friday May 25, 6pm-8pm: Dharma Talk, $40
Join Authorized Level II teacher, Taylor Hunt, for an evening discussing the philosophy behind the Ashtanga Yoga method. He will share his story and how the practice helped him find his true path. Learn how this transformational and healing practice can work in your life and how to overcome some of the roadblocks along the way. This is an interactive discussion you will not want to miss!
Saturday May 26, 1pm-3pm: Foundations: Ground Your Practice, $70
In this workshop, we will take an in-depth look at the traditional Ashtanga Yoga method while exploring the foundational poses of the Primary Series. The standing and seated poses lay the groundwork for the Ashtanga Yoga method and are designed to strengthen the legs while opening the hips and hamstrings. They create a grounded and stable base to further progress in the practice. We will spend ample time exploring proper alignment and techniques to work through restricted movements. This workshop is appropriate for all levels of practitioners.
Sunday May 27, 1pm-3pm: Sutra Study for Modern Living, $70
This is an interactive discussion on the Yoga Sutra’s of Patanjali. The Sutras are regarded as the authoritative text on yoga, outlining the eight limbs and offering guidelines for living a meaningful and purposeful life. Learn how these threads of wisdom are relevant today and how to apply them into your life. Join Taylor has he shares insights gained from many years of study with Sree Aswath, Vedic scholar and cousin to Pattabhi Jois.
